In dilemma whether should try 5w-50 since my car current EO is due...using 0w-40

Is it advisable switch from 0w-40 > 5w-50?
Both are Mobil oil..

All the while been using 10w40, 0w40 since I'd got my car.
Engine feedback respond is quite positive since my car engine is 4G93..as you know this engine valve lifter prone to noisy & loud due to different EO grade used.

so you got too much performance/good FC and want to lower that by going for thicker EO?

My usual workshop mechanic reckon should try w-50 for better
top end & can reduced lifter noise..not sure about fc part might be worsen or better...

why you want to change to xw-50 oil? is it because want extra protection? or.. you expect that it will give quieter noise? or.. the foreman keep asking you to take xw-50?

Heard some owner of 4G93, engine will get better top end power band & lifter noise reduced also..

Btw, I saw tesco offered RM139 for Mobil1 5w-50..tempting get 1 biggrin.gif

try different brand/model of lubes, not thicker viscosity.

How about 30 viscosity? Thinner & lighter?

Try Penrite 5W40 HPR or their premium range. Confirm will reduce lifter noise. Don't know how it does it.

It's good la. But how good it is , really it depends on preference. My Wira ran quite well on Amsoil but was quite rough with Mobil 1 Gold. My current Nissan runs very rough with Prince but runs great with Penrite. Right now I'm running on Penrite HPR for all my cars.
Can la. Not gonna kill you if you go with 15W40. Your engine is probably leaking somewhere anyway. Better than running zero oil.
My preference would be (Mind you.. personal preference)

1) Shell Helix
2) Elf Evo
3) Repsol

I've used all except the Elite Evo Repsol. I've used the formulate elite or whatever you call it from Repsol, the semi. Wasn't too happy in my Wira. Broke down pretty fast. But just a note, my Wira wasn't stock so the requirements for the car probably was a little more demanding than a stock wira. So perhaps I probably shouldn't have used a semi.

Where did you get your oils from at that price?

Bro Izso,
Thanks for your point of view.
My car is on Mobil 1 Semi Syn 10w-40 now...but there's no promotion for it now.

I prefer Mobil 1 fully syn as I'd used Mobil 1 new life before my car engine runs smoother any other fully syn eo.

Btw, those price from Tesco Puchong outlet (near IOI there).
The price was last Saturday & Sunday.

Hi all sifu,

I have some question on ATF (torque converter gearbox).
My car using old school proton 4 Speeder box.
All the while I'm using Proton ATF + previous oil changed i have added 1 bottle Lubegard Red.

For next coming ATF oil change:
1) Go for something better branded ATF oil?
2) Or just keep using Proton ATF SPIII & Lubegard?
